    If you could read my mind love
    What a tale my thoughts could tell
    Just like an old time movie
    About a ghost from a wishin' well
    In a castle dark or a fortress strong

    I can see her lyin' back in her satin dress
    In a room where you do what you don't confess
    Sundown you better take care
    If I find you been creepin' 'round my back stairs
    Sundown you better take care

    There was a time in this fair land when the railroad did not run
    When the wild majestic mountains stood alone against the sun
    And long before the white man and long before the wheel
    When the green dark forest was too silent to be real
    But time has no beginnings and history has no bounds

    The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down
    Of the big lake they called 'Gitche Gumee'
    The lake, it is said, never gives up her dead
    When the skies of November turn gloomy
    With a load of iron ore, twenty-six thousand tons more
